new pet portrait

I have just finished a portrait of the beautiful dog Binks, who sadly passed away, earlier this year. Binks’ owner got in touch with me and asked if I could create a piece of work to commemorate the life of her beloved pet, so I suggested using both the date of birth and date Binks died to create the portrait, working from photographs.

If you would like to commission me to do a portrait of your pet, or are thinking about it, get in touch and I will be happy to discuss ideas and answer any of your questions. Check out more examples of my commissions here.

A sleuth of bears


Can you spot my ‘B for Bear’?
I was sent this photo by someone who purchased my bear card online, and has displayed it in such a great way with more bear illustrations. I’m chuffed to be included in such a talented collection.
Pick up my ‘B for Bear’ card or limited edition print from my Etsy shop

Cards, prints, cushions and more available from Brick Lane’s Upmarket

This Saturday 12th December I’ll be setting up shop from 11am – 6pm, at Truman Brewery’s Upmarket on Brick Lane. You can pick up lots of Christmas gifts and cards including hand-stamped and screenprinted cushions and tote bags, signed limited edition Alphabet Animal prints, and Christmas cards. I will also be showing some examples of my portrait commissions, so come and have a chat with me if you’re keen to find out more.
See you there!

New double commission

Bear commission post One of two commissions for two small children of a family in Austria – a bear and camel. At 100 x 100 cm they are the biggest works on paper I’ve done and I have used a mixture of different sized stamps, as well as a linocut for the B and C. Each piece represents each child, through the letter, corresponding to their initial and the numbers, corresponding to their birthdays. These are great for brightening up a child’s bedroom, and it’s, something which will not just last their childhood, but a piece of art they can keep for the rest of their lives.
